Coronavirus Position Statement – May 2020

May 18, 2020

Assured Biosolids has published a revised Position Statement on coronavirus in relation to biosolids treatment and recycling to agricultural land – it has been updated to reflect information published since the previous version was issued. Importantly the conclusion remains that the available evidence suggests it would be highly unlikely that the COVID-19 virus can survive in sewage or sludge long enough to pose any risk to human health, particularly when combined with the controls and barriers in the BAS. Assured Biosolids will continue to monitor the available evidence and will review the position statement as further evidence becomes available. The position statement is available here.
